    Problem: Assume you are given a non-negative function K(s). We would like to construct a plane curve B(s) with curvature
    K(s).....

    HINT: Use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to show B has unit speed and then compute dT/ds.

    Problem: I. If K(s) = ... using the above datum, construct a formula for B(s).

    Problem:
    Assume you are given a non-negative function (s). We would like to construct a plane curve (s) with curvature (s).
    Show that such a  may be defined by

    where

    Hint: Use the fundamental theorem of Calculus to show  has a unit speed and then compute dT/ds.
    If , using the above datum, construct a formula for (s).

    Solution:
    First of all, we need to point out that (s) is the vector whose components are the coordinates of a current point of the curve:
    ( 1)
    which is defined parametrically. As the parameter (s) is varying let's say from ...
